    The Curse of Monkey Island

    Hi everyone!

    I'm trying to get hold of a few copies of 'The Curse of Monkey Island' for one of our clubs here in our Primary school.

    I remember playing it when I was about 8 years old and TOTALLY loved it, it stretched my puzzle solving skills, entertained me and i had fun at the same time.

    Does anyone know where we can get hold of it??

    If not then any other puzzle / text / adventure games for the kids would be greatly received

    The older Lucas Arts point and click games (Sam & Max, Day Of The Tenticle, Full Throttle, The Digg and Monkey Island 1&2) can be played on modern machines using ScummVM. All very good.

    Well it's for the kids so i don't think they'll be bothered- i'm more interested in the point and click, puzzles, humour and adventure element!

    But i've just encountered a problem:

    Just bought the game from 'Steam' which i've never used before and it seems i can't use it in school!! Nightmare proxy filters!!

    Anyone know how to get around it???

    Cheers for all your suggestions by the way xxx
